Allthough it is normal to experience side-effects of SSRI's the first time, this does sound like you say: You should notify the one who prescribed them to you about the reactions you have. Some react with an upset stomach to these medications and it will get better, but the way you describe it I think you do the right thing about trying something else.
One should really not dread taking anti-depressants.
If you have an allergical reaction such as hives or rash or breathing difficulties, you should seek medical attention.
hi. I've been on effexor for about 3 months now. I really felt bad the first few days, but after my body adjusted, I have little to no side effects. It will get better! I also had some muscle twitching, a tight feeling in my jaw, nausea, extreme tiredness, incredibly jittery. Now I don't think I have any of those.
Working out (once you feel better) also helps the medicine work better. I started doing yoga, and i notice that I feel even more better.
